For me, June of 69 doesn't seem very good. The once intense psychedelic songs now sound tentative, and they just don't know this twangy stuff well enough yet.

Seems like the boys were being as Pariotic as musically possible this show.

High quality stereo audio recording with excellent mix until "Doin That Rag".

After that it's pretty unbearable

"Doin That Rag", & "Let Me In 83968" has some audio issues on the left channel...hiss.

The audio doesn't get any better during St Stephen, or Love Light...

And to think in less than two weeks from this show the USA would be the first country in the world to land on the Moon.

For all you intellects that say the Moon landing was a "farce", google "mirror on the moon".

Eat, drink, be merry and listen to the GRATEFUL DEAD.

Thanks for the Love.

Right from the start of Hard To Handle, the band is RIPPING. They kick back into mellow gear for the country/cowboy tunes but continue to play very well, The Other One is as good as it gets! Jerry swallowed a frog while trying to sing High Time, apparently, though. Sounds painful. A proto-Casey Jones followed by two from their early days for old time's sake, then back to RIPPING for as good a Me & My Uncle as JG has ever played; which, sadly cuts out midway. The tape changes at that point to one with pulsing drop-outs, the show becomes hard to listen to at this point, but worthwhile for a very, very hot Doing That Rag, a humor/C&W tune and Bobby singing Dire Wolf (darn well, too.) St. Stephen and TOYLL are perfunctory, although tight, closers.

An interesting short 69 show to say the least. This one is notable for Bobby singing Direwolf. Most of the first set are all Bobby tunes, with Jerry on pedal steel which is quite nice. Mama Tried through Silver Threads are less then 3minutes per or due to slices over time. During Crypical, you get a good sense of why the band complained about the monitors.
1st of only 2 Let Me In.

It's a hoot. Check it out. King Bee is great. The moment I hear that Typhoon, I get the chills. Always been a sucker for the harmonica. Phew, Let Me In 83968? Didn't think anything could be worse than Golden Needles and Slewfoot.
Spirited Lovelight. The show as a whole is about average. Maybe even less so. Fidelity is pretty good.
